Romantic comedy about a series of mix-ups. Brigitte Kaufmann wants to divorce her husband Jörg who is an engineer and chief executive of an electronics company – and a hopeless pedant. Benno, a former boy friend of Brigitte, has a slightly bizarre idea how they could save their marriage. A piano player, whom Benno has seen in a bar, and who looks exactly like Jörg, is asked to work his charms on Brigitte and to try to dissuade her from divorce while Jörg is on a business trip. Piano player Engel agrees on the plan and acts as Jörg at home with Brigitte as well as in Jörg′s workplace. The plan succeeds: Brigitte does not want to divorce Jörg anymore, and his colleagues are glad about Jörg′s change in behaviour. But when Jörg comes back, he learns about the scheme and tracks down his look-alike – but finally, he is more than happy about the outcome of the plan.
